Rowan Brothers is a PhD candidate in the joint Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University. His work focuses on the clinical applications of non- invasive diffuse optical technologies for detecting cerebral metabolic stress in pediatric patients with sickle cell disease (think “FitBit” or “Apple watch” but for the brain), with the ultimate goal of better-informing clinical care to decrease patient stroke risk.

Jais Matta is a research technician in Dr. Annabelle Singer’s biomedical engineering lab at Georgia Tech. Jais’ research is helping to find a non-invasive treatment method for Alzheimer’s Disease using flickering light at a specific frequency. Jais works primarily on CAD design and 3D printing, optimizing protocols, and building experimental equipment.
